Budding archers invited to have a go

A local archery club is holding a series of taster days to get more people involved in the sport.

Cleve Archers are holding a series of sessions throughout the summer at their shooting range on the outskirts of Winterbourne.

 For a donation of £2.50, would-be Robin Hoods will be introduced to the club and the basics of modern-day archery by the club’s qualified coaches. The sessions last 2 hours and take place on the second Tuesday of each month and are open to adults as well as children aged 7 or above. 

The next taster session is on Tuesday 8 May at the club’s shooting range at “Up Yonder”, Bury Hill, Moorend, BS16 1SS. Future Taster Sessions will take place on 12 June, 10 July, 14 August and 11 September.

Places can be reserved via the club’s website at http://clevearchers.co.uk/community-taster-sessions/. All equipment is provided. 

Cleve Archers has been in existence for over 50 years and has recently embarked on an ambitious project to develop their own permanent shooting range. 

The club currently rents their ground at Moorend but has purchased a field of their own close by on the Old Bromley Heath Road and has planning permission to create a new shooting range along with a club building. 

The new field is currently being levelled and the club hopes to be able to move to its new home in around two years’ time. In addition to its taster sessions, the club also offers 5-week beginner courses. More details can be found on the club’s website.
